    Well Just got home after testing my new amp, that I got on Ebay for 20 bucks, pretty cool gadget for the prices.

    I got an increase of 1.5km and that with an omnidirectional antenna, for my next try im using a Flat panel antenna an try to get to the 5km mark.

    Anyway here is the video.

    Which phantom do you have? Did you boost only 1 antenna? If P3S was it 2.4ghz or 5.8ghz? Sorry for the questions just sorting my purchase of some amps now.

    Hi Rob:

    I boosted the 5.8ghz with the 2w amp and boosted the 2.4ghz with the 27dbm mod.

    My Phantom is a Standard with firmaware 1.5.7 and ARGtek Antennas.

    I you are just going for distance, may I suggest getting a Flat Panel Atnenna for the 5.8ghz, Ive heard It works much better. Im getting one for my next range attemp.

    Thats the amp I got and im powering it with a 10k mah 5v powerbank.

    Argoxp,

    Thanks for getting back to me.
    I have the P3S and ItElite antenna. Same firmware as you. I have got 3.2klm with this so far and I am keen to boost the signal. Not keen so far to do the 27dbm mod but prob will soon

    Hello, I've never heard of the 2w mod, is there an installation video? Would it work with my advanced?
